Nasi Goreng

Nasi goreng is a staple in every Dutch family home and perhaps the most widely integrated Dutch-Indonesian dish in the Netherlands today. It's classic fridge-raid food, using up leftover rice, vegetables, bacon and eggs to make a filling meal that'll please the whole family. Try this easy nasi goreng recipe from Boekoe Kita cookbook.

This IS a very simple recipe. And very bland. It needs some spice. And…why use Pandan rice with its distinctive, permeating flavour?
I have eaten in quite a few authentic Indonesian restaurants, but they never used Pandan for the nasi.

I would love to give Oesi the benefit of the doubt: I am half-Indonesian and we do use pandan rice. It’s aromatic flavor adds to the dish. Having said that, it is as properly described “fridge-raid-food.”. Use whatever you have in the fridge, spice it up, tone it down and make it exactly the way your family likes it. Not one Indonesian family will have exactly the same nasi goreng recipe. I tried this recipe too, it’s a basic good fried rice and can always by adjusted to ones own flavor.
